Remember our odd partial-fax from the legal beagles of Germany firm Smartbook AG earlier this month
? The company had made a name for itself by attempting to dissuade bloggers and news sources - sometimes with threats of legal action - from using the term "smartbook
", claiming it holds the trademark and would aggressively protect it from misuse. We asked Qualcomm
if they had anything to say on the matter, and their legal team has given us a statement. Apparently, Smartbook AG haven't been quite as upfront as they might have been, and in fact the German courts have given them a spanking of their own over misrepresentation of their restraining order.
